THE ACB WEEKEND BEER PICK
This weekend we’ll be hitting up something innovative that Samuel Adams introduced in 2018 that melds the character of an ale with the moutfeel of a lager. One of the most interesting things that the brewery has ever done Sam ’76 is a 4.7% ABV blend of two active fermentations – a base lager and a base ale – each with their own respective yeast strains.
